Manipur mother’s 5.9kg baby India’s heaviest

IMPHAL: A woman from Manipur's Thoubal district has given birth to a girl weighing 5.9 kg at the state-run Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) hospital in Imphal East, setting a record for delivering the country's heaviest baby.
M Shenu Devi (37) gave birth to the baby, her fourth child, on Friday night around 7.25 pm through caesarean section. The team that helped her deliver the baby was headed by Kh Paikhomba Singh, assistant professor at the department of obstetrics and gynecology.

"Considering the extraordinary size of the baby, our team, including the anesthetist, another gynecologist and nurses, performed the caesarean section with utmost care. We were successful," Paikhomba said.
"No congenital anomaly has been detected in the baby girl whose body length (height) is 56 cms. Both mother and child are in sound health," Paikhomba said, adding that the previous national record was set in 2010 by a Surat-born baby girl weighing 5.7 kg.
The normal weight of a newborn baby in the country is around 3 kg, Paikhomba said. He added that the formalities to officially declare the Manipuri baby as the heaviest are being processed.

The mother, a housewife, will be discharged within the next few days. Her husband Maipakchao (45) of Kakching Khunou village teaches at a private school. The parents expressed heartfelt gratitude to the team of doctors for successfully performing the surgery. A large number of people, mostly hospital staff and people visiting other patients, assembled to get a glimpse of the record-holding baby.

The heaviest baby ever born in the world weighed 10.8 kg (23 Ib 12 oz) in Canada in 1879, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Sadly, the baby died eleven hours later.
